Elemis Limited Edition Papaya Enzyme Peel

I was practically ecstatic when offered to sample Elemis' Papaya Enzyme Peel with it's celebratory limited edition packaging, in honor of it's 10th anniversary.  I have always had success with Elemis products and this time was no different.  The vibrantly colored, papaya and pineapple inspired packaging served as a sneak peek into the way it made my skin glow.   
It's an ultra luxe, velvety cream that glides on easily and smoothly.  I used an amount the size of a dime to gently massage over my cleansed skin.  As if it's heavenly, tropical scent wasn't enough to wake me up, my energized reflection definitely was.  I rinsed it off after 15 minutes to find my skin soft and revitalized.  It didn't feel anything like a peel, rather it treated my tired skin to what felt like a spa facial.   It's natural fruit enzyme papain gently dissolves dead skin cells and help reduce the dryness on my cheeks.  It's enzymes are blended into a natural milk protein base to give the treatment peel superior moisturizing properties and pH balance. 
It's best attribute is that it actually soothes your skin.  There are no exfoliating beads because it works without the need for rubbing.  I liked that it didn't tighten while it dried and felt comfortable on my skin.  It is perfect for those with sensitive skin and need to be cautious of irritation, (especially that winter redness I experience every year).  I use it once a week but feel it is gentle enough to use more often, especially when you need that instant "pick me up". 
As part of it's anniversary celebration, Elemis has partnered with Socially Conscious Foundation (SOCO) to help fund over 50,000 vaccinations for children in Africa.
